Garrett Hampson, the 29-year-old player went for a walk. Born on October 10, 1994 in Reno, Nevada, USA. The talented player made his Major League debut with the Colorado Rockies (2018-2022). He did that last season with the Miami Marlins, with whom he was able to get his best.
During the 2023 regular season, Hampson enjoyed 221 at-bats, collecting 61 hits for an overall average of .276. He homered three times, mostly driving in 23 runs. He stole five bases and posted a .729 OPS.
In his six seasons in the major leagues, the American had 1,379 at-bats. His average was .241 with 333 hits. He drove in 113 runs and hit 29 home runs. His OPS is .676 and he has 57 stolen bases under his belt.
Garrett Hampson to the Kansas City Royals
The Kansas City Royals posted on their Twitter account on November 29: We have signed Garrett Hampson to a one-year contract. Welcome to Kansas City, Garrett!. The utility man may be having the best season of his life MLB. His excellent performance helped him get this contract for two million dollars.
It should be noted that Garrett Hampson has done it all on defense. Given that he covers six positions – CF, LF, RF, SS, 3B and 2B – he can easily be classified as a true all-rounder. Due to the above reasons, it is impossible to make him permanent in the coming season. After signing with the Kansas City Royals, this team becomes his third home in the MLB. First he would do it with the Colorado Rockies and then last season with the Miami Marlins. It’s true that at 29, a Major League player can already be considered a veteran. It remains to be seen how much Hampson will contribute to his new team.
